Teleport is a peer-to-peer or p2p CDN, which means that for the distribution of content they redirect traffic from user to user. This also means that they do not have their own servers to distribute content from. As a result, a p2p CDN functions differently from a regular CDN. The best use case scenarios are larger livestreams, and/or very localized content. For a closer look at how p2p CDNs work please read this article.
The Teleport p2p technology is based around an easy to copy and paste piece of code, that implements all the functionality and works on both PC browsers and mobile apps. Additionally, Teleport has native integrations with Shaka Player and HLS.js.
The company was founded by members of the anti-piracy team at Piratepay, providing them with expertice in p2p protocols. The company was founded in 2015, in Russia. Teleport has partnerships with 2 companies, Nimble Streamer, and Skolkovo which provides the financial infrastructure.
